Continuing the anime news set to be revealed in the upcoming double issue of Young Jump, Ryu Fujisaki's 1996-2000 Chinese mythology-inspired Hoshin Engi aka Soul Hunter is set to be adapted into a new TV anime.
The series was previously adapted into a 26-episode anime in 1999. The new one will feature Kensho Ono as Taikobo (previously Hiro Yuki), Takahiro Sakurai as Supushan (previously Yōichi Masukawa) and Tomoaki Maeno as Bunchuu (previously Takashi Matsuyama).
The earlier anime was released in North America by ADV, then rescued by Discotek. Viz released the manga.
